Tendonitis & Tendinopathy
- Although tendinitis can be caused by a sudden injury, the condition is much more likely to stem from the repetition of a particular movement over time. Most people develop tendinitis because their jobs or hobbies involve repetitive motions, which put stress on the tendons.
- Using proper technique is especially important when performing repetitive sports movements or job-related activities. Improper technique can overload the tendon which can occur, for instance, with tennis elbow and lead to tendinitis.
